Today and in the coming weeks, Hope Church will be having a garage sale. In the bible, people gave up everything to be given to those in need.
“Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.” – Acts 4:34-35
This is essentially similar to what we are doing. The church members have donated their possessions so that they can be sold and having the proceeds go to the church. The main focus will be the Hope Church Building. The building alone costs $610,000, plus more for the renovations that we need to do.
We can apply this same principle in our lives, we are selfish people, so it is hard most times to share the things that we have. However when we do share, you will certainly not lack. To us this doesn’t make sense, because God says, give and you will have more. Sounds like a contradiction, but that’s because we’ve been brought up to think that giving means we have less.
Lord thank you for all the people who have shared with me, I pray that you bless them abundantly and overflowing that they won’t be able to contain it. I pray that the garage sale will be a success and that you will have your way. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
